numbers of calls, general day to day and how we're meeting those cole. calls. and i think as technology changes, responsiveness probably is improved and even just with major housing improvements like sprinklers in the s-r-os and other major improvements, it might reduce the number of calls to certain areas of town. ~ i know some stations like 34 and the outer richmond have a specific focus and are always needed for different needs around the ocean beach area. but just knowing some of that data would be helpful in understanding your budget. but i'm wondering will we get that information as the budget goes forward? >> certainly. and we'll have some of that information for you next week in terms of call volume, area of concentration, and then the guidelines by which we're mandated to provide responses both from the fire suppression side and the emergency medical response. >> thank you. >> we can have that for you next week and we'll follow-up with your office if there is anything specifically you'd like to see. >> thank you, chief. much appreciated. >> thank you. >> and at this point we'll

of radio frequencies, radio technology, even before the planning we didn't know what they had. it took us several planning opportunities and meetings to flush through some of that information and one of the biggest take aways for us, as a city we're required to have a tactical interoperatable communications plan. it describes how you interoperate in an emergency or an event within the city as well as regional partners. we don't have that with military and i think that's one of the biggest take aways, we need to really flesh out a document so we have captured who our contacts are, what technology they are going to bring to the table and start that initial planning from the get-go. we also had some technical challenges with land mobile radio. you know, we have the coverage issues, but we were stationed at the san francisco police department command van, i had some very sharp people there who were able to work through a lot of those interoperatability issues so a huge thank you to the police department and also the fire department and sheriff's department were also there able to provide u
ways. i guess since those days there has been one important improvement, one technological improvement, that we use expensively to create interoperatability and that is ip networks built of sdparate systems and the network allows us to operate. as you see from our demonstration as you checked in this morning, as you ridge stered this morning, san francisco talking it oakland, talking to this ship, talking over cellular, talking across and with different networks. the challenge for interoperatability is beginning to be met, i would say, the challenge for interoperatability at the same time is about to get much greater. we as a nation are about to embark on the most ambitous, most challenging communications endeavor that we have ever attempted, which is the creating of purse net, the public safety broad band or 4g network. and with that brings the promise of new challenges for sure in interoperatability and new capabilities that we have never had before. in fact, no other country is as far along as we are, even though we're just starting. what we see is the opportunity there to inter
was asked when i was running a technology company before i joined the board of supervisors to show up at the city of the site of a client. that city was new orleans. this was a few weeks after hurricane katrina, which we all know will be probably the greatest civil engineering set of blunders that our country has made in our country's history. and what we all learn from hurricane katrina is what happens when we don't have a community that is prepared and a set of relationships that is ready to be hit by the big one. which leads me to the third reason why i wake up at night. the neighborhoods that i represent in the northeast not only represent the oldest neighborhoods in our city, but some of the most vulnerable. we have some of the poorest residents. half of my district are recent immigrants who are mono lingual. i have hundreds of constituents who live in buildings that contain them where they live three, four, five people in a room that might be no larger than 10 by 15 feet, in buildings that are absolutely prone to earthquake, fire, and the next major disaster. and, so, i was aske

to intro daus a lot of technology to help with the interoperatability of the civil military exercise. one of the main goals that we had for this was to allow our military a crisis response adaptive force package and opportunity to allow their training and certification in providing the most appropriate military expeditionary force for that scenario. one of the things that we realize in the military when we do these exercises in a foreign humanitarian response, that a lot of our military capabilities are not just for overseas foreign disasters but it also allows the military to be trained and certified to respond to local domestic disaster situations as well. i had mentioned that we had 22 nations participating in rimpac and this slide is a representation of the military and civilian partners that we had participating in this event. and we had many, many international partners and we had a lot of domestic partners: medical and military editionary partners as well. okay, this is our command and control slide. we took a lot of care to get this right. we wanted to make sure that we portra
their purview. they reject deals with very sensitive military technologies and stuff like that. for the most part, our investment market is just about the most open and the world. i don't think quantitatively if you look at the numbers, i don't think you can quantitatively make any nonlaughable case that the united states is close to foreign investment. the question of whether i few foreign investment is a good or a bad thing what i have to tell you is this. when you are looking at foreign investment in the u.s., what it means if somebody else has dollars. they have wealth and they are choosing to buy shares in some american corporation or invest in putting together some business in the u.s.. if you are looking not as an alternative to buying goods and services from the u.s. which is what you are looking at when the u.s. is running a trade deficit, you are looking at it that thing. it's not that foreign investment itself is bad. the issue is not whether you have job creative investment and somebody putting up money to build a hotel in newport beach. the issue is not whether you have the inve

the resolve and the resiliencke of these people. technology obviously was impacted so in order to get us a letter in the quickest amount of time possible, they typed it on an old typewriter, took a picture of it and emailed us the jpeg. no scaner, nothing like that, it was a jpeg of a leg. i said, good enough, it's a letter. we took that to ann kronenberg and said here we are, what can we do. in the meantime we did some brain storms, is this something real, is there any value we can add to this scenario? what we came up with was obviously we don't have the deep pockets to send over rebuilding teams or send over thousands and thousands of tons of material, that's just not what we could do. but what we could do is assemble a small team to go on a mission to van and meet them and talk to them and find out more about what do they need and is there an intersection of what we can do for them and in the meantime it gives us an opportunity to really look and see what the situation was and what we can take away from it. so that led to the next question, which all of us in government understan
